“O Lord that lends me life,
Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.”
For that which we are about to eat, may we be truly thankful.
“Some hae meat and canna eat, –
And some wad eat that want it;
But we hae meat, and we can eat,
Sae let the Lord be thankit.”
“A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed – to be observed on the 2nd Monday in October.” Canadian Parliament proclamation, Thursday, January 31, 1957
I was once told that practice makes perfect; in my experience, I found that it also makes permanent. A thankful spirit comes from practicing gratitude on a regular basis. This week will be dedicated to thanking our family, friends, community and fellow creatures that walk with us in the world.
“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?” William A. Ward
